time ago, we mentioned that president obama and mitt romney both will be in ohio today. keep in mind, ohio, the 18 electoral votes considered up to now a tossup, despite the fact that many polls have given an edge to the president. i promised you last hour john king, i deliver, of course, john king, good to see you, he's in columbus right now. and, hang on, john king, i do have to get this in, paul steinhauser, our colleague, in washington, he's updated our cnn poll of polls, and this is an average of nine national polls. and for the first time, in my recollection, this cnn poll of polls shows a lead for mitt romney. romney leading obama here, 48% to 47% in our cnn poll of polls. and, john, i'm ondering, since we're seeing this post debate swing, it appears toward romney, are the predebate polls in ohio that show that obama lead, are those pretty much null and void? >> i would wait until the top of the hour and release our new cnn poll from the state of ohio. i talked to the romney campaign, some sources in the romney campaign a short time ago, and they say they have governor romney
and mitt romney both have a play list that, again, i think it is trying to give them the character or persona. mitt romney has johnny cash on his. obama has arcade fire. all these, like -- i was listening to them this morning and just sort of -- you read so much into it, what do they mean by that lyric? what are they trying to say? >> why are they choosing -- arcade fire. who exactly mentioned they must have a group in charge of social media, which would be a pretty awesome job if you're a youngster out of college, right, and tweeting on behalf of the president or mitt romney. is that who it is? >> yeah. mostly it is not the candidates posting. >> it is not? >> shocker. so there are people employed to do this. i think this came out of the 2008 campaign, you know, president obama had a lot of success reaching out particularly to young voters on text messages and social networks. you mentioned that was more twitter and facebook then and now spreading into these other networks too like tumbler or spotify. >> how successful, ultimately, as you mention that young voting bloc that is so
romney. >> this morning both sides are claiming victory and, indeed, everything may change in the next five days when president obama and governor romney take the stage again. but what biden did give is the president -- gave the president a path throwing his detractors off the scent and leading his best friend on the path towards victory. franklin, as the new guy at the table, i ask you first, did vice president biden get the obama campaign back in a place it wants to be? >> well, i'm not sure he got them exactly in the place where they want to be, but i think that he did help stem some of the damage. i think he made best bed wetting liberals like myself feel much better, that they had regained some of its offensive juju and weren't going to roll over why the rejuvenated romney walloped them. >> what was your assessment of paul ryan overall? we're going to get to specific sound but in terms of paul ryan and his debate skills last night, what -- how do you grade limb? >> i think what people are looking for when they are going to watch a debate like this, especially a young -- relatively
that both sides misrepresented the facts. mr. romney misrepresented the facts on his medicare plan and on the president's. let me say, yes, he has to be aggressive in defining who mitt romney is. he'll use his own words. mr. 47%. i think, i think, lay out his vision in contradistinction to romney's and do so in a more aggressive way. >> i want to ask you about the enthusiasm gap particularly among latino voters. we see in our polling while the president has a huge edge in the latino vote, there's a real drop-off since 2008 when then it was 77% enthusiasm, now it is 59% in terms of hispanic americans. what you going to do to make sure people turn out? >> nare sending me all over the country. i'll be at jefferson-jackson dinner in iowa, i've been it to florida. we have surrogates all across the country. we have a grassroots campaign that has been talked about as the most aggressive, the most focused on social media and on a broad cross-section of speaking to voters. we're going to knock on doors and talk to voters, and we're going to get that vote out. i agree that our work is cut ou
.com ffor help finding a plan that's right for you, give unitedhealthcare a call today. >>> both mitt romney and president obama agree that iran must not be allowed to develop noounk weapons. they say they draw a red line at a nuclear iran, but the two men differ on where that line actually is. the president says he will move against iran if it makes direct steps to acquire a nuclear weapon. romney promises to stop iran from ever making a nuclear bomb. >> iran today has never been closer to a nuclear weapons capability. it has never posed a greater danger to our friends, our allies, and us. and had never acted less deterred by america as declared by iranian agents to assassinate our -- >> we're talking about mitt romney's big foreign policy speech. i want to bring in holla to talk about it. one thing is this idea of avoid aing nuclear iran. from what i can tell and from what a lot of people say, it looks like the sanctions aren't working and it looks like diplomatic efforts aren't working either. how are people respond sng. >> well, it's just really a question of making a difference between
was saying before and what john has been talking about both here and elsewhere, which is how the romney plan reducing taxes, regulation, cutting spending, will result in a better america and a better life for the american people. >> yeah, dagen, if you were to go get an interview for a job in any business, you would not go in there and sit during the interview trashing the guy that had the job before you. you would try to sell your potential boss, here's what i bring to the table, what i would do, if you hire me to this job. that's the same thing when you're running for office. yet both these guys, maybe they never interviewed for a job, i don't know, but they just want to trash the other guy, and we had 90 minutes of mitt romney being mostly positive about what he would do. and he shot up in the polls as a result. he should make all his commercials that way and the next two debates the same thing. let obama a fester in his own problem. dagen: but is president obama in a tough situation about talking that way about himself in the next debate because of his record over the last -- >> that's a
numbers. this is the new poll from pew and it indicates romney with a four-point advantage, within the sampling error but look at the september numbers, an eight poi eight-point advantage for the president. let's go to gallup. this is of registered voters conducted both before and after the debate and you can see the president with a five-point advantage. so it is interesting, two different polls, two different stories here. we're going sto see a couple moe national polls to get a sense of how much of a bounce romney got from the debate. i always say this, the battle for the white house is a battle for states and the electoral votes. go to this out of michigan, michigan a state where mitt romney was born. look at these numbers if we have them. look at the president's advantage in michigan. it was ten points back in september. that was the lead. now it's just down to three, which is within the sampling error. we have a lot of pls coming out to analyze. >> that looks like a lot more people came into it than dropped out of it or changed. there's only a wee difference between obama's s
morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> ron, is mitt romney trying to ve more to the center? what does his statement mean? >> first of all, mitt romney is going to be a pro life president and his campaign is saying he will have a pro life agenda. in that same interview with the des moines register, he said he would reinstitute the mexico city policy, which would end federal funding for abortions overseas in other countries. right now he's talking about what voters care about, which is jobs, the economy, rising deficits. >> i understand. hang on. hang on. hang on. ron, we're not going to do talking points here. i'm asking you a very simple question. >> i'm not doing talking points. >> i didn't ask you about the economy. we can get to that. what did he mean in his statement that seems to be contradictory statements? >> i just told you what he meant. he said that his agenda is not going to be focused on abortion. it's going to be -- he did not say it was going to be focused on other issues, but obviously it's going to be. that's why he talked about the economy, what voters care about in t
on the vice president to kind of move both of those lines of argument forward tonight. >> do you think we're going to hear from the vice president some of the things that the president did not mention, the 47% comment that mitt romney made, the role of bain capital, the issue of how much he pays in taxes? >> well, i think some of the things about romney himself. >> he has made arguments like that, repeatedly, dozen of times, it is central to his view of the debate about the role of government. he has repeatedly argued that once we get to a point where a majority of americans are receiving government benefits of one sort or another, they will vote themselves more benefits at the expense of those who are paying taxes. i mean, mitt romney has, as you know, and sean hannity renounce whatted he said about the 47%, but it is essential to paul ryan's view of the world, so it will be interesting to see what he says about it, and mitt romney's later comments about it. >> i want to you see this. again, our viewers were looking at air force two. we're waiting for the vice president to get out of the
if not more. maybe 92% or 93%. they're either voting for sure for president obama or sure for romney. maybe 6%, 7%, 8% legitimately undecided orswitchable, if you will. still able to change their minds. it's that group, undecides, switchables in the key battleground states both campaigns are going after right now, and i think in a close race like this, it's going to be very, very close in these battleground states. everything is important, and tonight's debate will be important as well. although the two remaining president's debates will be more important. >> right. those undecideds you said, critically important. wolf, you have a busy night ahead. prepare for your show and for the coverage tonight. a big prop for what you're about to undergo. the big running mate's challenge on the stage. our coverage helmed by mr. wolf blitzer along with anderson cooper and our crack team, panelists and pundits starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern. you can't get to a tv, has a live, too, streaming. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equ
are calling governor romney that. that is very absurd here. what they have done is to store it what each of these candidates is advocating, it has been distorted by both sides on occasion. what they are doing right now, the obama campaign, is really beyond compare. the reality is, professor rosen is stepping forward to defend his analysis, saying that the white house and the president and his campaign staff are utterly wrong when they suggest that lowering rates is not adequate to simulate more growth and to reach a revenue neutral solution. megyn: david axelrod was on the sunday shows saying if you lower rates, and eliminate loopholes, he says, i am not giving gifts to the rich because i'm going to get rid of a lot of popular deductions that the rich take. but david axelrod says that's not enough. even doing that is not enough to make up for all the revenue that he is going to sacrifice by lowering the rates. lou: he wants to do something very important. the national liberal media will not focus on it. he is talking about ending loopholes and shutting down these inefficiencies within ou
was showing if something could happen he united states. i think they both met their bar what they were trying to do but it was very different than last week where there was a clear winner, mitt romney beat barack obama. that is not the case in this. melissa: i felt watching it last night sort of each side was nodding along and saying my guy did a great job, my guy won. it seemed very sort of even across the board. do you think that is a fair assessment? >> well i do. and i think that is the way most debates go. last week was a very rare instance. melissa, i will say this, at the same time, we're starting to see what obama's strategy is going to be next week. that is, don't let mitt romney get his rythym. that is what vice president was trying to do. and he did it very effectively. you're starting to see how they're adjusting to that defeat in the last week's debate. next week's debate should be very interesting. melissa: the vice-presidential debate doesn't really, it doesn't really do that much, right, unless, unless there's a knockout blow or unless somebody likes like they could not fulfil
said what if bashar al assad doesn't go away, but they both agree no boots on the ground in syria. >> looking back and not looking forward. paul ryan is talking about what potentially a romney/ryan ticket would have done differently if they had been in charge, identify rebel groups, identify freedom fighters, perhaps help those that the united states might want to push forward as far as the future leadership of syria is concerned a little bit earlier than the obama administration has. but as far as plans for what happens from this point on, no. and there is no appetite from the united states or quite frankly any country in the western world for boots on the ground in syria. as we heard from the vice president, joe biden, this is not libya. it is a much more complicated scenario. >> i want to get to the libya comparison in a minute. ryan claimed that the administration referred to assad as a reformer. a reformer. to your best -- >> no, this has been -- it has not. this has been fact checked by several sources including cnn. the word reformer was used by hillary clinton in march of
